December 2017 Wedding Wednesday: Emily + John


Emily + John's wedding this past summer up at Grand Superior Lodge was spectacular, spectacular! Floral inspiration from "Fairy Dell" china; a delicate but bright floral print paired brilliantly with the lush green landscape + blue waters of Lake Superior!.

Emily's bouquet consisted of peonies, dahlias, tweedia, scabiosa, spray roses, astilbe, seeded eucalyptus, + ranunculus in a variety of bright + happy hues. John's boutonniere coordinated nicely consisting of a succulent with a ruby spray rose + seeded eucalyptus accent.

Ryan + Britt's styled engagement shoot was something only dreams are made of. Starting out on the shores of Lake Superior in Northern Wisconsin, they were the epitome of effortless + beachy. With a table set for two, seaglass tones, + burnt orange chairs coordinating with her floral belt, what could be better. Her belt consisting of thistle + locally-grown dahlias in hues of orange, was trendy, yet unexpected. 

Brittany, owns Simply Gypsy Events + she is our most favorite wedding planner in all the land! She wins at every event + occasion she partakes in - can you say type-A bohemian?! That is a rare freaking combination! We especially enjoyed working with her on the strawberry fields shoot that she conceptualized to absolute perfection! [linked below]



One location + costume change later, we are now in the depths of the Northern Wisconsin forest + we're not mad about it.

Eventually, every S+G girl will end up in a photo shoot + Cailie was no exception! She stunned in this gorgeous, modern/industrial shoot at Clyde Iron Works in Duluth, MN! Feminine with a rock + roll vibe, along with exposed timbers + brick, gold succulents, + eucalyptus up the yang, that is everything right, if we do say so ourselves! 

Our darling, Sara killed it with her punk rock inspired, crimped, braided up-do that was perfectly paired by the "classic with an edge" makeup by the fab Derick Cich! Cailie put the lace dress from Bella Rose Bridal to work + it did not disappoint! Rounding it out by the color palette of teal, pomegranate, + gold florals, this shoot is one for the books!
